Slipware bowl, 2 stylized cats and a bird, JW

Part of an auction lot, a striking bowl with well executed decoration. JW initials to the front but can't see the mark in the book. Any suggestions please?

I can understand the Egyptian suggestion, Rob, but would an Egyptian potter use Western alphabet letters to sign it or more likely Arabic?

Thanks Naomi but Josie Walter replied that it wasn't hers; Martin Griffiths also replied to say that it wasn't his and Jenny Whitehouse's (Cirenster workshop).

Going back to Josie Walter, it looks like the dish that comes up on Pinterest with the same initials is a misattribution. The bird looks a bit like a kookaburra (though it looks like a kingfisher too) so I wonder if it's an Australian potter? Where do I look for Aussie info?

I've never been to Egypt, but regarding the western alphabet letters to sign, I don't know? It was just a gut instinct with the cats and I would say the bird is maybe a dove, though I'm no twitcher 😂

Anvil Pottery in Wales were doing slipware recently. I think itís most likely British but someone is decorating and someone else is potting.

I'm still thinking Egypt, the plate in the link is nothing like your piece but it is signed using Western alphabet

Rob, please donít post eBay links; I have to delete them. Either Post the listing title and members can do a google search for themselves. Or post a Pinterest link if there is one.
